Kitbots and Fingertech Robotics have joined forces to develop a new range of hubs for smaller bots in the
Fairyweight (250g) to Mantis (6lb) weigh classes.
The hubs are the result of years of combat experience and offer high performance, problem free tire and hub replacement and all at a lower cost.
is retained by a custom washer that is held in place with a snap ring. The washer features a recess that locks the snap ring in position reducing the chance that it is damaged in combat. The hub is secured
to the motors shaft by a larger (8-32) set screw. This allows a larger and more robust hex key to be used and reduces the chance of the set screw screw recess or hex key rounding off.
The hubs are
anodized for good looks and come in two sizes to suit the popular 3/4" wide Lite Flite or the narrower, 1/2" wide Lectra Lite Tires, and with 3mm or 4mm bores.
The wide hubs only weigh 0.25oz (7g)
complete and the narrow ones are only 0.21oz (6g) each.
